Have you already started getting ahead on your fall home maintenance? Now that October is in full swing, it's time to spruce up your Milwaukee house before the cold winter storms in. Take a look at a few helpful tips reported by interior design website Houzz.com:
- Check faucets: Before the cold weather comes in, make sure that your outdoor faucets and gardening hoses are completely shut off. The last thing you're going to want is a damages water pipe! While you're outside, also check up on the winter gear in your garage, such as snow-blowers, to make sure they are working efficiently before the first storm.
- Perfect your porch: Utilize your porch while the weather is still comfortable. Water plants and wipe down the area before your trick-or-treaters arrive. Once all of your maintenance is completed, it's time for the fun part: decorating. Try sprucing up the area with a festive scarecrow or pumpkin.
- Safety first: Now is a great time to make sure all of your safety devices are working properly. Be sure to check smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. If you have a youngster in your house, ensure that child-proof locks and openings are working correctly.
- Store clothing: Fall is the perfect time to sort through the old clothing items in your closet. Set aside a bin for items you want to keep, clothing you want to donate, and junk you want to toss. Be sure to contact us at Bazaar Home Decorating center for all of your custom home organization needs.
